This Crock Pot Roast with Vegetables recipe is one that will surprise you when you make it because it is such an easy roast recipe, but one that has such great results. That is because of the method that is used to make this Crock Pot Roast with Vegetables recipe. The crock pot is perhaps the best kitchen gadget for baking and cooking to have been invented in a long, long time. It makes all your food taste great, and it is almost impossible to burn anything in the pot (almost; you could still do it). As well, the flavor that results from this method of preparing a meal is practically impossible to match with any other method that is also this quick and simple. Using a crock pot for this Crock Pot Roast with Vegetables recipe or any other similar recipe, is a great way for a new cook to try out his or her skills in the kitchen. This is because of the safety of this method of food preparation that requires possibly the least amount of skill on the part of the cook to ensure that the food comes out delicious for dinner.

The key to this system is twofold. First, the heat is very low. That means that whatever you put in the crock pot (such as the pot roast in this recipe) will be cooked very slowly. Second, the food is enclosed in the pot, under a lid. That part of the method helps to preserve the juices that come from the foods you are cooking, and also mean that you can minimize what you do to season and flavor the food and still get terrific results. So even if your aspiring cook knows little more than how to salt and pepper some foods that might be enough to have great success with this method. The method is quite old, although the crock pot has only been around since the earlier part of the twentieth century. Once the crock pot appeared, though, it quickly became a mainstay for most home cooks. And, even today, you will find most cooks own at least one of these handy little kitchen gadgets.

This beef recipe is pretty much perfectly suited to this method of food preparation, too. When you put meat and veggies in to a pot, and then cover the lid and let it all cook together, you get the most amazing results. Even if you make it on the top of the stove, or in the oven, when you cook food together in this way, the flavors co-mingle and result in some of the best tasting food that you could possibly imagine. So enjoy this dish!
